Till is in intensive care apparently.

One news report I just saw says he is "at risk of death"

Scary times

What's the chances of all these famous people getting it. Makes me think it's much more widespread than they think and a lot of people have it without symptoms.

If you're a pleb they won't bother to test you.

That's absolutely the case. Some people have been tested and spent two weeks in self-isolation while asymptomatic. People without symptoms can still pass it on though.

It makes sense to only test people with severe symptoms who have been hospitalized considering the resources available. It also makes sense to test senior people in government who are supposed to be co-coordinating the battle against the virus.

It should be cancelled, as much as we all want to go. For the best interests of everyone and their families.
Don't care.

The mortality rate between countries varies greatly, from as low as 0.2% in Iceland. I reckon it's not much more deadly than normal flu, just a lot more catching.

Rammstein have reported that whilst Till was in ICU for one night, he tested negative for Covid19 which is good to hear. Just shows how horrible the media is these days on trying to spin things in such negative ways...

Damn right. Look at the graph via the link below. Now it might well have shot up again at the next update, but how much money would anyone bet on that?

Comparing these two graphs, what conclusion do you come to?

That Coronavirus deaths weren't included in the second graph
